From Bukowski’s “The Genius Of The Crowd”

beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average seeks average

but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you to kill anybody not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude they will attempt to destroy anything that differs from their own
not being able to create art they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully they will believe your love incomplete and then
they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
like hemlock

their finest art.
